KARACHI: Kamal Ahmed Rizvi, who made millions laugh through his acting and writings, breathed his last in Karachi on Thursday. He suffered a cardiac attack.
Born in 1930, the legendary actor earned a huge fame playing the character of Allan in Alif Noon. Rizvi moved to Lahore in 1951, where he got closed to Saadat Hassan Manto – another Pakistani writer of great fame – and began to write in many genres.
He acted in a number of dramas, but it is hard to forget Allan, the most loveable conman of our television. The tall and lean character with a quizzical smile on his face.
Kamal Ahmed Rizvi left many of his peers behind while playing the role of Allan.
On stage, his script and well-versed dialogues always received rounds and rounds of applause.
Though, Allan is no more among us, but his writings and the services he rendered will continue to serve as an institution.
